Did you know most vitamin supplements do not come from food? Even the products with colorful fruits and vegetables adorning the label are seldom derived from produce. Typically, supplements are synthetic—they are made in a laboratory. For example, Vitamin D is irradiated lanolin. Lycopene is genetically modified bacteria. CoQ10 is chemically extracted from tobacco plants. With modern science it is possible to synthetically imitate the chemical structure of nutrients used in your body.
Although this cheap, unnatural chemistry looks the same under a microscope, your body is not fooled. It knows the difference and craves quality materials to build, to repair, and to fight illness. Look for nutritional supplements made with real food and consume fruits and vegetables daily in a variety of colors as well as whole grains and other fresh food. Don't settle for imitation nutrition. Reach for the good stuff, the REAL stuff.
